Saperavi Red, Zurab Topuridze
ORGANIC / VEGAN / NATURAL / LOW SULPHITE
Saperavi is one of the most well-known native red grapes in Georgia. It is extremely easy drinking so a great entry point for the genre. An attractive nose of red forest fruit. The palate is juicy with silky tannins with lots of raspberries, blackberries, and a little spice, great acidity, too.
The wine is made in the traditional Georgian “Kakhetian“ way which means fermentation, maceration, and wine aging occurs in clay amphoras (Qvevri). The method is since 2013 been recognized by Unesco as humanity heritage.
Zurab Topuridze has been helping in his granddad's vineyard since his childhood and made his first solo wine at the age of 13. He makes natural wines in 22 underground qvevris. His vineyard is four hectares, planted on the terraced slopes of River Supsa valley.
